Sadre-Orafai English 1101 Fall 2007 Project 4 Example The search for the right college is a daunting prospect for high school seniors and  their parents. Students must visit college campuses, fill out applications, and in most  cases, seek financial aid. The average college tuition is several thousands of dollars per  year. Thankfully, many states, including those of Georgia, Tennessee, and South  Carolina, have realized that families need financial assistance in order to send their  children to college. To aid these families, state-funded scholarships such as the Helping  Outstanding Pupils Educationally or HOPE program have been established. The HOPE  program began in Georgia and since that time has been copied by Tennessee and South  Carolina. Unfortunately, the various HOPE programs are tied to these individual states  and are therefore unavailable to out-of-state students. In order to assist students who  excel academically, streamline the college application process, and open more doors for  out-of-state students, the HOPE Scholarship programs of Tennessee, Georgia, and South  Carolina should join together as a single effort. The HOPE Scholarship, which is granted to students who maintain a specified  grade point average in high school, is an individual effort of each state. Presently,  although the HOPE Scholarship gives many financially needy students the opportunity to  attend college, it restricts the location of colleges where they may apply. Despite its many  benefits, the HOPE program is limited should a student choose to attend a college out of  his or her own state. A way to broaden its effectiveness, however, would be for states

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
